Multiple Ports & Mobility Groups

On our wireless network we have two 6509-E switches each with a WiSM and a 5508 WLC. The 5508 WLC only had one port connected to one of the 6509 units then we added another port on the 5508 to the other 6509. Do I need to add the IP and MAC address of the the second port of the 5508 to the existing Mobility Group?

Thanks for any help.

Ageel,

Thanks for the reply but the first link I reviewed and didn't answer my question and the second link isn't working.

Re: Multiple Ports & Mobility Groups

You only can attach the other port to the other chassis if your WLC is doing lag and the chassis is setup for vss. You can do this also if you don't have lag, but you have to define the WLC interface as which is primary and which is backup.

Re: Multiple Ports & Mobility Groups

When you adding mobility member you need to configure the Controller IP address  & its MAC address (NOT the interface MAC address WLC connect to). Therefore in any connection type (LAG enabled or NOT) it has to be your 5508 controller IP address & its own MAC address.

If you type "show sysinfo" or "show mobility summary" on your 5508 you can get this information as shown below. Then you can add that onto your exisiting mobility group configuration of WiSM (you have to add WiSM detail on your 5508 mobility config as well)
